Clinton County teachers Courtney Norris and Brittany Guffey have been selected by the Kentucky Center for Mathematics (KCM) as Kentucky Math Teacher Leader (KyMTL). This group of passionate teachers were selected for the program after completing a rigorous application and interview process.

She has been teaching for seven years at Clinton County High School. Throughout her teaching career, she has taught many different math classes ranging from Algebra and Geometry to AP Computer Science Principles. She looks forward to sharing her passion for mathematics and learning new ways to increase student achievement.

Brittany Guffey is a 2011 graduate of Lindsey Wilson College with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. She received her Master’s Degree (reading and writing specialist) from the University of the Cumberlands and is currently working on her second master’s degree (school counseling) and doctorate degree (school leadership) through the University of the Cumberlands.

She has been teaching for nine years, this being her fourth year at Albany Elementary. She has taught mathematics departmentalized in grades K-5. Brittany has been a part of several KCM trainings through her career and enjoys these trainings because they reach students on all levels and help teachers bring math education to students in a fun and real-world applicable way. She is very excited about the opportunity to bring her love and passion for math to her school and district!
